Christopher Peterson, a professor of psychology at the University of Michigan who has studied the effects of optimism and pessimism, said experts in his field try to help patients “reframe things” to see loss more positively. That might mean encouraging them to take pride in getting through an awful experience, or saying “you didn’t fail, you found something that didn’t work.” …
Americans tend to frame things in terms of contests and wars that must be won or lost. Many challenges, however, are about hanging in there and managing a bad situation.
Losing prepares us for the slog that is life. The world doesn’t give us many finish lines, but it does give us the long run. Let other parents scream and curse at the opposing team, and berate their own kids over their performance. I’m just glad that my kid was in the game.
Join us today for PAZ at 4:00pm. We are in need of someone to step forward to be our coordinator of our first Sunday of the month meal. Jim Duel, who followed Jean, has retired. Without new leadership, this ministry will need to change or stop.
